August 26

Bass Performance Hall

Nothing official on Massey Hall's 2005 calendar yet.

I used to study piano when I was a kid, but, have pretty much forgotten everything. However, as I traced the route of Gord's 2005 concert schedule, doesn't it seem as if it's a sideways note? Or just a funny squiggle....! lol

Pay no attention to the message directly above this, Gord. Atlantic Canada has even cheesier hotels, and plenty of basketball courts.

Good Grief Cathy - haven't you learned to spell Colorado yet? Gord she means "Gord, come to Colorado" We try and try to teach her to spell but she is so defiant!

SilverHeels,

My 16 year old talks about wanting to visit "Britain", as opposed to "England". Is one preferable to the other? (And I hope this isn't a stupid American question-my apologies if I should know better.)

Rona,
'Britain'once meant the whole of the UK: England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, but today the Scots and Welsh crave independence so I am not sure myself what Britain means! But I live in England, I am very sure of that. And no, it was not 'a stupid American question'. As you can see, even I am not sure of the difference.
I hope your son makes it over here. He will have a great time.

How very true Bru (True Blue geddit?!
OK I feel it's time for a few ethnic jokes here.
one of my favo(u)rites is how do you confuse an Irishman?
You put him in a room with a spade fork and shovel and tell him to "take your pick"
Actually I am probably as guilty as anyone in that I might say "England" as a generic term for the entire British Isles (when I should be saying "Britain") which sure as hell annoys the Scots and the Welsh... eh Mair?!
On the other hand the terms Britain and British Isles are often I believe used and/or interpreted as meaning the whole shebang including the Republic of Ireland which sure as hell annoys the Irish!!
part of the confusion stems from the fact that the "U.K." is the TLA (Two Letter Acronym) for:-
United Kingdom: in full, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
and it is all too easy to ignore the "Northern" bit.(unless you have just listened to the stentorian tones of the Reverand Ian Paisley)

John, John, John. tsk.
Ethnic jokes. I come from a long line of Irish ancestors. I have to tell you, no confusion as to what I'd pick or what I'd do with it! (all in fun)

As an Oklahoma resident, I'm glad to see that date added. Now, if I can just get it all to come together.
